Mall Opens After Delays
Bellevue, Wash., Lincoln Square, a mixed-use development in Bellevue, Wash., opens for business on Tuesday after years of delays and a change of ownership. It includes 310,000 sq. ft. of retail (some of which is still being leased), 148 residential condominiums, a 16-screen cinema and the 337-room Westin Bellevue. Kemper Development Co., the developer and manager of the property, acquired Lincoln Square in August 2003 from Lend Lease Real Estate Investments.
The 1.4 million-sq.-ft. projects will ultimately include an office tower that will house the new Eddie Bauer headquarters. Construction on the tower is due to start in early 2006.
